In the other divisions there were few games. In Division One Dairymaid looked doomed, this time going down to fellow strugglers Thame Town. Despite
battling for 60 minutes the Maid thought they were in for a point at 3-2 but poor finishing and being caught on the break meant another collapse, the final score 7-2.
